“Dr. Kao is a caring and very thorough dental surgeon. He set realistic expectations and met them all. The process is not cumbersome when considering how much time spent in the dental hair. I am 3 months post operation with no comlications” – Michael Behar, dental implant patient

“I was referred to Dr. Kao by my primary dentist. I had a tooth fragment that broke through my gum. Dr. Kao fixed the problem in the first visit. The surgery was virtually panless and within a week I was “good as new!” P.S. The staff is awesome!” – Luis Silva

“I am a patient of Dr. Kao. I first had my two molars extracted a week ago. I plan to have implants done with Dr. David Kao too.
I felt that to have tooth extraction, bone graft and root implant with Dr. Kao, I will be safe and in good hands, since he had extracted my teeth and did bone graft last week; I am healing perfectly. I am very happy of the result because I am a 70 year-old woman.
Dr. Kao is a caring doctor, he is gentle, kind and thorough. You’ll get excellent care from his service.” – Peggie Gendall
